TOKYO (MacHouse) – Last January, Apple, Inc. (hereby, Apple) started its Mac App Store, where the company says that software developers can “reach millions of users around the world.” It sounds like Apple offers an easy and exciting solution to independent software developers.

TOKYO (MacHouse) – There are so many Mac software titles that handle image files. One is Adobe Fireworks. Another is Preview, which even comes as a free application with Mac OS X. They are great software titles. But they aren’t good enough for us when we have dozens of files to work with quickly. So we have built a graphic application of our own that let us do our job easily and quickly. It’s called Image2Go.
Image2Go is a spin-off of an existing software title called Junk-O-Magic Pro. And we have updated its graphic part with numerous minor improvements, also adding a new component.
Image2Go is very easy to use. And that’s the way we like it. Whether you want to batch resize a bunch of image files or just create favorite icons or Mac icons, there are just simple 3 steps to follow.
- Launch Image2Go and select an image function by clicking on a tab panel button at the top.
- Work on settings.
- Drag and drop image files onto the drop box.
The initial release comes with 10 components. And you can save settings separately for each component. In the best scenario, when you launch and select a component to work on, there’ll be just one last step left – Drag and drop image files onto the drop box.

TOKYO (MacHouse) – MacHouse is ready to introduce a new software title. The first Mac app of the month to release is called QuickMarks.

If you have multiple URLs for which to find Google PageRanks, QuickMarks is a quick solution as well. And you can even export the result to a tab-separated text file (.txt).
